Short Seawatch

I called in at Druridge briefly tonight after a session ringing barn owls pullis with Hugh in the Doddington area.

A short seawatch was the game, there were lots of terns fishing offshore, mainly 'commics' with a lot of sandwich and at least five rosey's. The great northern diver (reported earlier today offuv E. Chev) was now off Druridge and an adult little gull flew S as did two manxies.

A group of 19, presumably returning, summerish plumaged sanderling pitched onto the beach with a couple of ringed plover - soon scared off south by dog walkers with out-of-control hounds!
